Attack on church in France: assailant’s family demands answers


SFAX, Tunisia (AP) – A third suspect is being held on Saturday in the investigation into an Islamic extremist knife attack that killed three people in a church in Nice. Meanwhile, the family of the alleged Tunisian attacker demand to see video footage of what happened and plead for peace. Investigators in France, Tunisia and Italy are trying to determine the main suspect’s motive, whether he acted alone and whether Thursday’s attack on Notre Dame Basilica was premeditated. Authorities called it an Islamist terrorist attack, which struck France amid mounting global tensions over cartoons published by a French newspaper mocking the Prophet of Islam.
